I understand. reach out to people and skype them and get some support systems. that are going to help you. it ain't easy especially with the fact that we're right now facing a pandemic. but hopefully something good comes out of this. I wish you the well with this. I hope you're okay. I know this isn't easy on you and I want you to know that we're all in this together. loneliness or not whether you get it from the pandemic or not. we're this together. so I hope you remember that and get help with whatever you need.

The best thing to do in that situation is to start a new life. Leave your boyfriend, make some friends and most important have fun and think about yourself.

I've felt that way before, and I understand. I think you should really talk with your boyfriend about your feelings but, most importantly, I think you shold go out more, maybe join a club and do something you like while meeting new people. The world is full of people waiting to enter your life, and I think the club idea is very positive in this situation. Although it may soung rough, I think that, if your boyfriend is not ready to change, you should definetly break up with him. You're not in your best moment, and the last thing you need is all that negativity in your life.

This is a difficult situation, and isolation can be devastating. I was in a similar situation when I was a teenager and it can be difficult to get the "right" type of support that I needed. If you are able to, accessing a professional mental health expert can be helpful. If your boyfriend is your first support person, maybe explaining your thoughts and emotions and how it affects you can be a first step. Sometimes they have never experienced it, and they can't exactly relate. How else can they help -- through physical affection, talking, etc. My go-to phrase is "Do you want solutions or comfort?" and then we go from there. Places like 7Cups were made to help and help you not feel lonely. There are people who care about you!

I hear that you are feeling stuck. This can be a difficult thing to handle and the best way I find to manage it is to imagine who I want myself to be. Imagine if I could be best friends with someone, what what they be like? Write a list and try to achieve some of these things. Sometimes we need to learn how to be our own best company. Another thing you could do to meet new people is volunteer! I have met a lot of new friends while volunteering at charity shops, or attending events like protests and parties. Don’t let yourself be held back by fear of what people might think and put yourself out there. The feelings of being stuck soon dissipate with the excitement of having made a new friend.
